Privacy Policy, Cancellation Rights

by SüdwestRing Versicherungsmakler GmbH

We respect your right to data protection, particularly your right of access to the personal data held on you. You are the one who decides what personal data we hold, what we can use them for and how we use them. Our staff are bound to confidentiality. The security measures built into our web site are state-of-the-art.

For our internet pages it is primarily Germany’s Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz - TMG) that applies.

All the information we collect from our public web pages is anonymous. We collect statistical information about the number of visitors to each individual page. The only information retained is the type of computer and browser used, the internet service provider, date and time of access and calculation data. Collected solely for internal use, this information is not personally identifiable. Where we want to collect, process or use personal data from your visit to our website, we inform you at the relevant point.

On our public website we only collect personal data for processing and use where you voluntarily decide to enter the information and expressly state your agreement, (e.g.. by clicking the check box or the supplementary statement “yes, I have read the privacy policy”). Personal information, such as your name, age, gender, address etc. is needed by us to prepare the product offering that you require. In this case your details will be passed on by us or a business authorised by us to do so. Information that you provide us with in your request for a quotation will result in this data being stored by us.

Personal settings are stored by us using cookies. Cookies are small text files that are permanently stored by the user’s browser on the hard drive. Broadly speaking, the use of cookies is fundamental to the smooth running of this website. They ensure that on each new visit (and particularly every time you log on) you will find your personal settings again. To achieve this cookies are generally used, as well databases on the website server. We only knowingly collect personal data on minors from parents/legal guardians and then only if and to the extent to which the processing and use of personal data is needed to comply with a contractual relationship. Brokers only collect data on minors with the agreement of the parents/legal guardians.

If you use a file from our range of downloads, access data is saved. Each dataset consists of:

The page from which the file was requested
The name of the file
Date and time of the request
The volume of data transferred
The access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
A description of the type of web browser used.

No record is made of your IP address. The creation of a user profile is excluded. The data saved are only for statistical evaluation purposes. Relaying the data to any third party, even as extracts, does not take place. You can look at these data protection provisions at any time on our home page and print them out. If required we are more than happy to email them to you. For this please send us a short email.

You have the right to cancel your consent to future data processing and use. To do this just send us a short email with your address, date of birth and email address. We will then immediately delete all your data. We always correct and complete stored data as soon as we know of any changes. If required we notify the data receiver of this. As a member in a closed user group you have direct influence on the quality of your personal data.

We delete stored data in an automatic process when the statutory or contractual retention period has expired, or if the data is no longer required.

We may use your personal data to inform you about other relevant services that we offer, where you have not opted out of receiving this type of information Data may be passed within our company group for promoting other products to you, if your written agreement to this is in the request for a quotation. We observe the boundaries set by the Data Protection and Competition laws.

If you have any questions about our data protection policy, please contact our data protection officer.
